The footballer believes they are suffering in Group E, but there’s still time to turn things around.

After losing 1-0 against Hungary tomorrow, the Wales national team sits in the fourth position of Group E, in the EURO 2020 Qualifiers.

The team has three points after three matches and is only ahead of Azerbaijan thanks to a victory.

But the team is just three points behind second-place.

Which is why Welsh footballer Sam Vokes believes his nation can still qualify to the EURO 2020.

“We’ve got an uphill task for the rest of the group but it’s still doable – 100 percent,” Vokes told Four Four Two.

“Realistically we probably have to win all of our games now. But you’ve seen this group, everyone beats each other.”

“The last two games we’ve had are probably the toughest in the group, and it’s obviously disappointing not to get anything from them,” he added.

“But we’ve got these teams back in Cardiff now and we’ll look to get something there.”

“We’ve got Azerbaijan at home next in September and that will be huge for us,” he continued.

“I thought it was there for us, which is why it’s so disappointing.”

He explained: “The second half could have gone either way, but I felt we were still the stronger side.”

“Gareth Bale has not had great game-time (at Real Madrid) but we know he is a match-winner for us.”

“There are no doubts from the lads in the dressing room what he’s got and what he’s about,” he concluded.
